    Okay, this is kind of a rant, but at the same time, this is information that you guys need to know so this won't keep happening.

First off, the most important point made in this journal...


    I've posted this information in my journals, on my profile page, I even put this in my darn comment signature; and people just keep on asking me to draw them stuff or roleplay. :headsmash: 

I know, many of the people who probably ask this aren't even one of my watchers and are just curious, but as much as it pisses me off to see the same question a few times a week, it would be super wrong of me to explode rage on one of them. 

You'd think that they would try to look for hints if I was a request-taker by briefly checking my profile, but to me, it seems like they look at one good drawing I do, then instantly ask for a request. :stare: 

So no, I do not take requests or commissions.

    But, somebody might spring up and say, :eager: "Well, you answer questions for people! Don't they count as requests?"

Partly yes, but mostly no. Unlike requests, the questions you ask me are very limited. You can't just say "Can you draw me blah blah blah" as a question to me or my persona, Artsi Cat. Only my selected fancharacters (and Artsi) can be asked questions, and the accuracy of the question is very important. When you think about it, there are ways to word a request into a question relatable to one of the FCs, (I'm not giving examples, though) you just have to think.

    And lastly, art trades. It's a good thing that someone brought it up. 

Since I answer questions for you guys, consider the answer to your question as my half of the art trade if you want to do one. :)
I usually see art trades like 50/50 requests. I never really did one since it involves me having to request someone to draw something for me, and I never really liked doing that. It makes me feel like the lazy person since I know I can draw it myself.

So, if you guys need any ideas on what to draw for me for the art trade, just check out my gallery. My interests are very broad. You can draw anything that I have indicated that I am interested in through the fanart I have drawn.

You are allowed to draw my FCs, just credit me when you draw them. And make sure that you read their bios in case if you're unsure about their personalities.

And if you want to draw Artsi, my persona with another character:

Bullet; Black make sure that it is one who I have drawn her interacting with, (Ex. Artsi with Kogenta, Leo, etc. most of them are in the featured section of my gallery)
Bullet; Black or one that has enough evidence of my opinion on the character. (Examples are characters that I may have mentioned in my descriptions/journals but have not drawn.) That way, you'll be more certain on her personality, and it's safer than trying to use a character that I'm not familiar with.

    Despite of all this, my idea to take a break is still not brushed off. I still have 5+ questions to do that were asked before the last journal I posted. So again, if you ask me a question now, expect it to be a while before I get around to it. 

So that's all I have to say.
Thanks for reading. :)

And if somehow... after all this crap I've written and someone STILL asks me for A REQUEST...IMing - :flailrage: + PLZ 
I'll just send them a link to this journal. :aww:

Journal History


artsicat13's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist
United States
I am an anthropomorphic fanartist and a throwback artist "because I'm late like that" :XD:
My favorite art tool is MS Paint (been drawing with it since 2009); now I'm also trying to get used to Photoshop, a more modern art tool.
I am a semi-fanfiction writer, since I usually add drawings that define each divided section of it.

I also host a Q&A section in my gallery for my FCs (fan characters) where fellow deviants ask them questions and I draw out their response (as long as it's appropriate.) I try to answer them as soon as I gain enough motivation to draw it out nicely; so it won't end up looking aggravated and lazy.
I also like to write rant journals (mainly about DA or art related topics that I feel concerned about.)

However, I DO NOT TAKE FLAT-OUT REQUESTS. I've been asked this question so many times and I have nowhere else to put this message.

My FCs:
Dymonde Eryka- Ratchet and Clank
An-D Emreld- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012)
(Under construction) Lillia Chrysan- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012)
Marienne Frank- Sly Cooper
Tailia Crosefir - Lackadaisy
Crowe - Storm Hawks
(Under Construction) Sydney the Hedgehog- Sonic the Hedgehog
Seth the Hedgehog- Sonic the Hedgehog
My version of Lombax!Clank will count too.

Just in case, I'll add my persona, Artsi Cat to the ask list.
If you want to ask me questions, they should involve "me" having to interact with any canon characters I'm familiar with; just like the FCs. (For example, the deviation involving me with Carmelita) One thing about the artist fursona, she can cross over into anything without logical judgement; since I pretty much crossed over into everything that I took interest in and drew. And she'll stay as a anthropomorphic cat no matter what style.

For those who want to ask my FCs (and my fursona) questions, you can comment them on my profile page, any askFC deviations, the FC's bio or the AskMyFCs folder in my gallery. Just be specific on who you are asking.
If you want to ask any of my FCs a question involving your FC, please add a link to your FC with a bio so I can have an idea on what your character is like and won't be shooting in the dark once I get to yours. It keeps me from wasting time when I get around to answering it.

Please be specific if you guys want to ask a crossover question, such as naming a character who has some similarities to my FC's fandom so they can relate to them.
If you still desire them to interact with an irrelevant character, please set up your question as an introduction or "what if" scenario.

Srry to bother you artsi but its just a MS paint question.
Can you make layers on it or do you just have to use the eraser tool?
artsicat13 Featured By Owner 13 hours ago  Hobbyist
I use layers. I only use the eraser tool to erase stray marks and smoothen raggedy edges.

Art trade?
artsicat13 Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2015  Hobbyist
             Requests, AskmyFCs and Art Trades    
Please read the whole thing. I hope that it answers your question. :)       
angiegarcia36 Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2015
So are you interested if you are then tell me what character should i draw

I am so sorry if this bother you
artsicat13 Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2015  Hobbyist
My half of the art trade strictly has to involve my AskMyFCs organization if you don't understand.
There are ways that you can request what you originally want in the form of a question for the FCs I have listed.

And I had already said in my journal, my interests are very broad. You can choose to draw what interests you the most from what I've already drawn in my gallery. I don't have a specific request.
And if the amount of options are too large for you, you can narrow it down to browsing the newest fanart I've drawn on one page.

(Sorry if you only became uninterested. ^^;
I figured that you had stopped replying because you were confused.)

It's alright, you didn't know. :)
Have you already asked one my FCs (or persona) a question before now? If so, then I have already done my half of the trade.
If not, then here is the journal with the bios  Ask My FCs (update)
And here's the folder of questions already asked. AskMyFCs
You can post the question here or in those places, and make sure you label who the question is for.

Just to ask–what would happen if the Cooper Gang crossed paths with Team Dark?
